Whiplash claim for £500,000 hits Scottish courts

A Scottish woman is making a personal injury compensation claim for £500,000 after she suffered a whiplash injury in an Edinburgh car crash.

The 36-year-old claims she still suffers pain as a result of the whiplash and insists that a major depressive disorder has arisen as a result.

She told Edinburgh's Court of Sessions, "The pain was so much and I continued to think I was going to get better. I had been told: 'You are going to get better. It is whiplash'. But as the months passed my emotions got frayed."

The woman, an insurance company employee, claims that she will never again be able to return to full-time work because of the emotional consequences of the car accident.

Solicitors defending the Falkirk woman who drove into the back of the 36-year-old's VW Polo are contesting the personal injury compensation claim. They argue that the £500,000 is excessive and also allege that the whiplash injury had completely healed up four months after the road accident.
